HBO continues plan to produce Green Lantern series where Alan Scott's transformed into gay, Flash movie might be scrapped, and Aquaman sequel spotlights "climate change"

In this TV Line interview, the cable channel announced plans to produce a GL series where Alan Scott remains in the same sorry situation he's been in for a decade already, ever since the overrated James Robinson took the task of corrupting DC's products ever further:
Co-written and exec-produced by the prolific Greg Berlanti and Arrow/Legends of Tomorrow co-creator Marc Guggenheim, Green Lantern (working title) will reinvent the classic DC property through a story spanning decades and galaxies, beginning on Earth in 1941 with the very first Green Lantern, secretly gay FBI agent Alan Scott (played by Jeremy Irvine), and 1984, with cocky alpha male Guy Gardner (American Horror Story‘s Finn Wittrock) and half-alien Bree Jarta. They’ll be joined by other Lanterns “from comic book favorites to never-before-seen heroes.”

When the DC superhero project was announced back in October 2019, Berlanti teased that Green Lantern “promises to be our biggest DC show ever made.”

LEGO Batman Movie scribe Seth Grahame-Smith, who will serve as co-writer/EP alongside Berlanti and Guggenheim, is the showrunner, while additional EPs include Geoff Johns, Sarah Schechter, David Madden and David Katzenberg.
Oh, now isn't this telling when Johns - a scribe who, much like Brian Bendis, ruined mainstream superheroes with his sleazy storytelling - is credited as one of the producers of a TV show retaining a corrupted vision of a character who was never created as gay back in the Golden Age. It basically confirms Johns never respected the original creators' visions (Bill Finger and Mart Nodell) in the first place. And what if Guy Gardner's characterization is portrayed negatively? Of course, as I'd argued before, Guy had his potential destroyed years before by the disgraced Gerard Jones, and if this is how the new TV show's being developed, it won't improve anything for a character who deserved better in portrayal. Berlanti's already proven an exploitive ideologue well before this impending embarrassment, and it won't be a shock if this turns out to be more of the same. If there's any DC-based product that could be boycotted this year, it's surely this one, which is yet another example of the terrible abuse of the GL franchise that was set on a path to self-destruction in late 1988.

On the other hand, the Hollywood Reporter revealed that the gigantically budgeted Flash movie starring disgraced "actor" Ezra Miller may be canned, as his criminal scandals continue to put a cloud over proceedings. Again, however, this trade journal, much like Variety continues to insult people's intellects by describing Miller through "pronouns", which is getting repellent at this point:
The fate of Warner Bros.’ The Flash hangs in the balance as actor Ezra Miller continues to make headlines for their controversial behavior and various arrests. An outright shelving of the film is not off the table, though it would be a last resort.

Warners — and its new parent company, Warner Bros. Discovery — had hoped to avoid the line of fire, because its big-budget DC superhero tentpole isn’t scheduled to hit theaters until June 23, 2023. But the pressure is mounting by the day.

[...] A source with knowledge of the situation says the studio appears to be preparing for three possible scenarios.

First, Warners has received indications that the 29-year-old Miller, whose mother has accompanied the actor in recent days, will seek professional help after returning home to their farm in Vermont after being away. If that happens, Miller, who goes by they/them pronouns, could give an interview at some point explaining their erratic behavior over the past few years. The actor could then do limited press for The Flash, and the movie would open in cinemas as planned.

The second scenario: Even if Miller doesn’t reach out for help, Warners could still release the film. But don’t expect Miller to play a prominent role in terms of marketing and publicity. Nor would Miller be the Flash going forward, as the role would be recast in future projects.

The third: The situation with Miller deteriorates further. This would see Warners killing the movie outright, as it could not be reshot with a different actor. Miller plays multiple characters and is in almost every scene. Scrapping a $200 million film would be an unprecedented move.
But, it'd be inevitable, and as I've mentioned before, failure by Hollywood to properly enforce contract morality clauses has led to this sorry situation. That aside, their insistence on sticking with pronoun descriptions, again, is enough to drive the sane up the wall. I wouldn't consider an attempt explain his awful behavior in Hawaii, for example, through press screenings, a way to reverse what's become a bad situation by now. If it didn't work for Alec Baldwin when he tried filming a disastrous video trying to explain the tragedy he caused on the set of the now cancelled movie Rust, it's unlikely to work for Miller either, considering how disturbing the accusations against him are. WB's best option would only be to put an end to the Flash movie's release altogether.

And then, what's this the UK edition of GQ is telling in an interview with Aquaman movie star Jason Momoa, where he talks about allegories for "climate change", as if that were literally the worst problem the world suffers from right now:
...his own film franchise has taken on a new life as a thinly-veiled metaphor for the destruction of the planet. Aquaman lays the blame for polluting the world on the behaviour of humankind, lamenting as the skies burn and the oceans boil. “These superhero movies dominate our market, which I have my own thoughts on because I love cinema, but we try to put out a positive message and go on an adventure,” he says. “Aquaman is the most made-fun-of superhero in the world. But it’s amazing to be able to bring awareness of what is happening to our planet. It’s not some story that’s been told over and over, [it’s a] movie about what’s happening right now but in a fantasy world.”

Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom, which will be released next year, leans further into climate change allegory. Surprisingly, then, it’s also “a lot funnier” than its predecessor, Momoa says. “I have a great time with… there’s a lot of…. It’s a throwback to…” he says, buffering as his brain calculates what he’s actually allowed to reveal. “I don’t want to give too much away. But we really get to speed up what is going to happen to this earth, and it’s not because of aliens.”

The sequel features a scene in which Aquaman’s alter-ego Arthur Curry gives a grand speech to the UN warning them of the disaster looming on the horizon. Things came full circle for the actor earlier this year when he addressed the real United Nations himself. Momoa was at the UN’s Ocean Conference in June in Lisbon; his daughter Lola, 15, and son Nakoa-Wolf, 13, who he shares with his ex-wife Lisa Bonet, were both seated in the front row. At the end of the talk they were called on in the audience to answer the final question – “What do you think we can do right now to change the world?” – which they took on as though they’d been asked where the toilet was. “It made me feel extremely proud seeing them speak for themselves and take this heavy moment in,” Momoa says. “I’m not as young as I used to be. It’s scary having kids and knowing what is going to happen to our planet if we don’t change shit now.”
Well I've got a feeling the Aquaman sequel will wind up bad as the 4th Thor movie, if the comedy alluded to is any suggestion. I'll never understand how Arthur Curry is mocked as badly as he have been, yet nobody thinks the same of Sub-Mariner, who's also talked with fish in the sea.

But that aside, I find it most extremely galling Momoa's got such a naive view of the UN, which has one of the worst anti-Israel biases and staffers around. And, why does it sound like all the human race is to blame in the sequel movie for pollution, rather than just villainous hoodlums? It won't be a shock if this movie turns out to be one of the "woker" examples of DC-based adaptations, with a plot that's pretty cheap when one considers that Iran's nuclear warfare is far more dangerous than pollution per se.

Based on these examples, there really isn't anything to look forward to when it comes to DC-based movies and TV shows, any more than Marvel's at the moment. For all we know, what's happening now with WB's productions could demonstrate why their projects, just like Marvel's recent ones, could collapse sooner than we think.

Kurt Busiek's actually willing to support Salman Rushdie

As many surely know these days, comics writer Busiek's a very far-left ideologue who's upheld accepting views of Islam, the "Religion of Peace", which tragically resulted in a violent assault on Satanic Verses author Salman Rushdie in New York, who's had an Islamic fatwa (judgement) on his head in the nearly 35 years since he wrote the book. So it's a surprise to discover Busiek's offered a supportive stance for Rushdie's sake after this horror occurred, which Rushdie so far was fortunate to survive: Well I gotta admit, this is certainly amazing, considering how far to the left Busiek usually leans. But does this mean he's going to reevaluate any accepting views he may have of Islam? Alas, there's no telling what a left-wing ideologue will think, no matter what information he reads from the Satanic Verses itself. Certainly Busiek's backing for Rushdie is the right thing to do after the horror the poor man suffered along with one of his colleagues. But if Busiek refuses to acknowledge what Bill Maher's willing to (and won't even write any comics stories dedicated to Rushdie's causes), then we get nowhere in confronting a serious issue that's still endangering much of the world. Problems aren't solved if we don't condemn the sources.

ASM #31 from 2001: a pathetic take on the issue of school shootings

A few months ago, the Texas city of Uvalde suffered the tragedy of a maniac infiltrating and committing murder at a local school. It's one of many sad cases of school shootings that have taken place in the past 3 decades or so. But most showbiz writers who take up these issues don't seem interested in confronting the subject seriously. One example from the past 20 years, coming just a short time after the massacre at a school in Columbine, Colorado, was the 31st issue of Amazing Spider-Man from 2001, written by the overrated J. Michael Straczynski; the 2nd issue he'd written after taking up the writing during 2001-07. This story, where Peter Parker took up a job as a science teacher in a NYC school, had a storyline involving a student armed with an assault rifle (it wasn't clear how he even got the weapon to begin with, for anybody who thinks realism is an important component in such stories) breaking into the school and blasting away, before Spidey was able to stop him. And what do we find out? A sample panel from the issue below:
So it turns out the shooter is a kid who's suffered bullying, and his idea of revenge is to endanger the entire school. Not somebody who could've been influenced by violent movies and video games. Yet this does suggest quite a few Hollywooders go by a "code of honor" and won't complain or question whether violent media poses any bad influence on younger viewers. And then, in this next panel:
Here, it sounds like Straczynski absurdly risked implying the kid was to blame too for being a "geek". Which is just as insulting to the intellect, as it suggests victims of bullies are to blame for failing to shed overt geekiness. All that aside, this was a very defeatist storyline, and the worst part is that there are leftists who actually believe the narrative employed here - all school shooters are merely victims of bullies taking out revenge against entire school bodies regardless of whether anybody was involved or not. And none of the shooters could possibly have ever been influenced negatively by the oh-so precious violence of Hollywood's entertainment machine. I recall a leftist or two on message boards over 2 decade ago who were like that, and they even turned out to be wolves in sheep's clothing themselves, who harbored lenient views of Islamic terrorism. Worst, they had accepting views of victim-blaming. In retrospect, apologists for both showbiz-based violence and real life Islamic terrorism do seem to go hand in glove.

HBO entertainment host Bill Maher pointed out a few months ago that Hollywood's got a problem of romanticizing gun violence and mass shootings, even as they're willing to shed a lot of other ideas that could be preferable to jarring mayhem:
Mahar said, “When liberals scream, do something after a mass shooting. Why aren’t we also dealing with the fact that the average American kid sees 200,000 acts of violence on screens before the age of 18? And that according to the FBI, one of the warning signs of a potential school shooter is a fascination with violence-filled entertainment. It’s funny, Hollywood is the wokest place on earth, and in every other area of social responsibility, they have intimacy coordinators to assist with sex scenes, they hire sensitivity readers to edit scripts, Disney stood up to the ‘Don’t Say Gay’ law. Another studio spent $10 million to digitally edit Kevin Spacey from a movie. But when it comes to the unbridled romanticization of gun violence, crickets. Weird. the only thing we don’t call a trigger is the one that actually has a trigger.”
This argument applies just as strongly to comics as it does to movies, if you take into account any stories involving jarring violence within the 4-color panels. In the past 3 decades, there were quite a few notorious examples of violent content, both physical and sexual, with Green Lantern volume 3's refridgerator scene in 1994, the rape of Sue Dibny in Identity Crisis a decade later (and the miniseries even concluded with the repulsive hints that Jean Loring suffered a similar fate), and Tigra was assaulted by The Hood in the Avengers in the late 2000s for cheap sensationalism, yet nobody complains how that's going more than a bit far either. More recently in movie adaptations, the pretentious Dwayne Johnson boasted all about the jarring violence that'll turn up in his new Black Adam movie, while simultaneously advocating for gun control. That says all you need to know about the disturbing hypocrisy prevalent in Hollywood.

The Ankler recently reported that some Hollywood celebrities did make a call for toning down gun violence. But much more consideration is required, including whether movies like Black Adam are a healthy influence if they're filled with alarming physical violence, and if it's as horrific as Johnson implied in his interviews, then a PG-13 rating isn't enough. And comics publishers approving of sensationalized violence are going to have to rethink this acceptance as well. And they can't keep boomeranging back on the kind of excuses the Spidey issue from 2001 builds upon. That's one of the reasons why serious issues have almost never been explored convincingly in the modern era.

Bizarre comic called Absolution by Peter Milligan and Mike Deodato

The Leo Weekly from Louisville, Kentucky, published 2 reviews of independent comics, Flavor Girls and Absolution. And now that I think of it, the former example has some eyebrow raising details as much as the latter:
“Flavor Girls” is a fun, colorful journey about a wary chosen hero thrust into a world she could never imagine. Filled with dreamy landscapes, fun costumes, strange magic and a colorful cast of characters, it is a love letter to the magical girl genre. If you’re a fan of “Sailor Moon,” “She-Ra and the Princesses of Power,” or “Little Witch Academia,” then I recommend grabbing “Flavor Girls” #1 off the stands!
If they're going to reference a poorly animated cartoon that was laced with political motivations, that's no way to promote the book in focus, and enough to make one wonder if this GN will also contain similar mistakes. Now, let's turn to the 2nd review, of Absolution, written by Peter Milligan and illustrated by Mike Deodato:
In a not-so-distant future, Nina Ryan, an assassin, has been sentenced to death for her crimes. But she’s been given a choice: she can still do what she does and have it live-streamed to an audience of online judges, including celebrity commentators, and of course “the people,” including all that comes with that — trolls, bots, jerks, fans, etc. If she can get enough support, she receives absolution in the form of points and walks free. But, as we all know, the internet isn’t always a friendly place, and for every fan who loves her exploits and style, there are others who want more blood, more boobs, more personality, more violence, less violence, the list goes on and on.
This sounds like yet another ambiguous attack on pop culture fandom, online or off, without making any distinctions between what's better or worse. And I firmly believe graphic, gory bloodletting is far worse than sex. That said, it's a shame Milligan seems to be somebody who seems more interested in dragging fandoms into the whole mess, rather than make a clear argument whether violence is a healthy influence or not. This kind of storytelling is not doing the medium any good, and takes away entertainment value from the product in focus. Assuming that's what Milligan and Deodato set out to do at all. And if not, what good is it to create these kind of independent comics?

Flash movie actor Ezra Miller arrested for burglary in Vermont

The already disgraced actor who played the Flash in the Justice League movie 5 years ago resurfaced in New England, and Variety reports (via Breitbart) he's been arrested and charged with burglary in Stamford, Vermont. However, the trade journal continues to reference Miller as "them", all for the sake of respecting his oh-so precious non-binary identity politic, which again makes this extremely difficult to read:
Ezra Miller, the embattled star of Warner Bros.’ “The Flash” movie, has been charged with felony burglary in Stamford, Vt., according to a Vermont State Police report.

According to the police report, Vermont State Police were notified of a burglary complaint from a residence in Stamford at 5:55 p.m. on May 1. Police found that several bottles of alcohol were taken from the residence while the homeowners were not present. After collecting statements and looking at surveillance videos, police found probable cause to charge Miller with felony burglary into an unoccupied dwelling.

Police located Miller on Aug. 7 at 11:23 p.m. and issued them a citation to appear in Vermont Superior Court on Sept. 26 for arraignment.

According to a Rolling Stone investigation in June, Miller has been housing a 25-year-old mother and her three children, who are between the ages of one and five, at the actor’s home ranch in Stamford, Vt. The property doubles as an unlicensed cannabis farm and has several firearms on the premises, according to the report. One source who spoke to Rolling Stone alleged that the one-year-old child was found with a loose bullet in their mouth. It’s unclear whether the Stamford properties are one and the same.
If I notice correctly, they've also confused one child with three when talking about the reckless endangerment they were housed under? All that aside, what is going on here? Why are some parents allowing these predators any access to their children? It's about time parents stopped allowing these monsters any contact with their kids. And it's about time for the movie studios to stop hiring them too.

With this kind of news continuing to swirl, it's going to be more and more embarrassing for WB to stand behind the Flash movie that builds on the Flashpoint event from 2011. Assuming it's released at all, it'll probably be relegated to TV streaming only, and without any fanfare or press screenings. $200 million down the drain over some of the worst choices that could've been made in actors and screenplays.

Poll reveals Americans losing interest in superhero movies

Breitbart found polling research revealing the fascination with superhero movies in the USA is waning:
...Americans’ enthusiasm for men and women in capes is waning, a Morning Consult survey found.

The poll data shows that “enjoyment of the seemingly never-ending stream of superhero content continues to drop among U.S. adults — and among even self-identified Marvel fans,” the report states. Between November 2021 and July 2022 the share of adults who say they enjoy superhero movies plunged five percentage points, from 64 percent to 59 percent.

At the same time, the number of adults who do not enjoy superhero movies increased 5 points, 36 percent to 41 percent. That number has increased 9 points since the survey was conducted in 2018.

Self-identified Marvel fans are still overwhelmingly dedicated to superhero movies at 82 percent, though that number is down five points from 87 percent in November. One-third (31 percent) of those fans say they are “getting a little tired of so many of them.” Notably, the number of Marvel fans who do not like superhero movies rose from 13 percent to 18 percent.
As a Marvel fan myself - specifically, of the comics up to the early 2000s - I can't stand the thought of watching them at this point, realizing where they've sunk to, and recalling that some of the wokeness these movies are suffering from now started a decade ago when the Thor movies were first made, and characters like Heimdall were race-swapped from white to Asian/Black. Why, the Marvel films are easily a big reason I've since been making efforts to watch arthouse cinema more often, where it can all go in any direction, and the foreign filmmakers are usually trying to build their movies on acting talent, not identity politics.

And let's not forget the makers of DC movies are no less guilty of PC as Marvel's been of recent, recalling the Justice League movie had a cameo by the social justice influenced Asian Atom, and Perry White was changed to Black in the earlier Man of Steel movie, played by Laurence Fishburne. Understandably, who could've guessed at the time that the filmmakers were going out of their way to change the original structure, rather than concentrate on merit? Even now, it doesn't look like WB's taking a wise path, seeing as they're reportedly following the direction Marvel's Kevin Feige goes by. From Movieweb:
It seems like there has been a constant comparison made between the DCEU and MCU, with the former always seeming to be playing catch up with the mighty Marvel machine. However, after spending many years distancing themselves from such comparisons, Warner Bros.Discovery CEO David Zaslav has revealed at the company’s Q2 2022 earnings call that the future of the DC franchise will be governed by a 10 year plan, which is “inspired” by none other than Kevin Feige’s Marvel Studios.
Considering where the Marvel studio is going under Feige of recent, I don't think that's a good idea. They include a statement from Zaslav himself, who said:
...There will be a team with a 10-year plan focusing just on DC. It's very similar to the structure that Alan Horn and Bob Iger put together, very effectively, with Kevin Feige at Disney," he added. "We think that we could build a long-term much stronger, sustainable growth business out of DC. And as part of that, we're going to focus on quality. We're not going to release any film before it's ready. We're not going to release a film to make a quarter. We're not going to release a film unless the focus is going to be, 'How do we make each of these films in general as good as possible?' But DC is something that we think we could make better and we're focused on it now. We have some great DC films coming up — Black Adam, Shazam, and Flash – and we're working on all of those. We're very excited about them."
After all the trouble Ezra Miller caused, there's no use promoting the Flash movie, because there are people out there who'd feel awfully uncomfy about watching a movie starring an actor who committed horrific violence, and exploited an underaged girl in the past decade. Also, if the following news from The Direct says anything, there's more PC at work:
In the movie, Quintessa Swindell will play Cyclone, the grandchild of Red Tornado. The character can create powerful wind gusts and is known for manipulating sound waves. The hero is a member of the JSA, otherwise known as the Justice Society of America, a team that has been explored in other recent DC properties, such as The CW's Stargirl. The JSA is expected to clash with Black Adam, which will likely result in some interesting, dynamic battle scenes.

Ever since news broke of Swindell's casting, certain individuals have criticized DC for “race-bending” Cyclone, who is white in the comics.
Since the character was originally co-created by Geoff Johns, it's hard for me to care, if only because I can't stand his writing. But, that doesn't mean this continued social justice pandering isn't dismaying and trivial. Even more troubling, however, is if the news the Black Adam movie will feature a transgender take on Ma Hunkel (the original Red Tornado) is correct. The character was originally a woman and mother featured in All-American Comics from 1939-44 in Scribbly the Boy Cartoonist feature by Sheldon Mayer, who soon cast her in a parody of superheroes, where she dressed in a goofy outfit that looked like it consisted of a pot for a helmet. If this new movie corrupts all that, the filmmakers will have effectively insulted Mayer along with his creation for the sake of their PC agendas. But that's already typical conduct in Hollywood.

All that aside, Dwayne Johnson, who's playing Black Adam in the movie, is decidedly one of the most overrated "actors" of the 21st century, and even the IMDB's contributors seem to think so. Quite a few of his movies to date have actually gotten pretty bad reviews. I have no issues with escapist popcorn fare, but in whatever I've seen of his resume to date, including at least 2 of the Fast & Furious entries, he is so dull and doesn't offer much in the ways of humor either. Only one of his early films, the Scorpion King, ever really interested me, and since then, it's been boredomville in whatever I've seen of his movies since. (Besides, I find it hard to care about heavy special effects these days.) So I'm not impressed when he talks of Black Adam as a pet project, period, and I'm sure not many others are either, seeing how, as the Breitbart article noted, the public's tiring of superhero fare. DC sometimes seems to follow up on Marvel's approaches much too late, and this could be another example in the making.

Leftist Jewish lawyer conceives superhero fare

YnetNews published a JTA interview with a comics writer and law firm employee named Daniel Kalban, who's quite a far-left ideologue on Twitter, and has recently developed a GN titled American Dreams, which spotlights a Jewish protagonist operating in the early 20th century:
Daniel Kalban is a 33-year-old law firm assistant who lives in Flatbush, Brooklyn. But when he’s not working his day job, he moonlights as a comic book writer, in a sort of double-life scenario that’s reminiscent of the caped crusaders he’s invented.

In 2016, Kalban created American Dreams, a comic book series centered on Jake Gold, a Jewish New Yorker in 1900 who, thanks to “a Thomas Edison experiment gone awry,” gains the ability to fly, as well as super strength to fight monstrous antisemites and other bad guys.

“I was dozing off listening to the score of ‘Ragtime’ the musical,” Kalban told the New York Jewish Week about his inspiration. “I was in a daze, and I was wondering what if superheroes like Batman and Robin were in that same tumultuous time period.”

Jewishness permeates the entire American Dreams storyline — the protagonist, who comes to be known as Liberty, escaped the pogroms in Russia, for example, and now works at a sweatshop in the Lower East Side. As a superhero, he fights a “bruiser” named Amalek, a biblical enemy of the Israelites. As he makes his way through turn-of-the-20th-century New York, he works for legendary Jewish magician Harry Houdini and is encouraged by Jewish activist and anarchist Emma Goldman to use his powers for good.
I'd like to think this is a project to admire. But Kalban's conduct online, including statements he made about Islam in the past, dampen whatever impact he presumably wants this comic to have. Interestingly enough, the article also says:
The superhero Liberty is similar to the writer in that he’s “not the most observant Jew in the world, but he’s proud of being Jewish,” he said. Kalban was raised Reform in Brooklyn and went to Hebrew school.
Well. So his default religion was the Reform sect, which has been notoriously anti-Israel for many years. No wonder he's got such peculiar double-standards, though what's really dismaying is the crude inflammatory dialect he's employed in his social media writing whenever he talks about politics. That's why it's difficult to support such a guy's products, if that's the way he's going to go about his business.

Even now, Kalban continues to make politically charged statements on Twitter, and it goes so far as the following: Hmm, look how he's following suit of countless other PC advocates, refusing to reference the now disgraced actor Miller by his biological gender. And he condones a pro-abortion position too, simultaneously using it as an excuse to attack conservatives, along with any European leaders he despises, here being Hungary's premier. If there's no belief in defending life and arguing in favor of preserving it, what's the point of his GN, American Dreams? And why no concern over left-wing vandals attacking pregnancy centers after the SCOTUS reversal of Roe vs. Wade?

I'm sure the premise of Kalban's GN has potential. But his political conduct on social media makes him unendurable, and spoils whatever points he's trying to make in American Dreams. A real shame he's being so heated about conservatives, and only wants to see them as inherently evil, because what if it turns out the GN contains metaphors for right-wingers? That'd hardly be doing any favors.
